About Us

Precision is all around us. In everything we see, everything we touch. It means the difference between success and failure, safe  and unsafe , sustainable and unsustainable. Whether it is at home and office or how we travel between them; how we generate energy and operate within our industries;  how we communicate and connect, or care for our environment and each other; precision measurements are vital for innovation and progress.


With over a century of experience in precision making, we at Yokogawa have built our reputation on understanding the needs of scientists and engineers across industries. Always at the forefront of technology, we further our mastery over our core technologies to enable engineers, who rely on precise and reproducible measurements, to make critical development decisions for their next generation of products.

We believe that sustainable innovation is driven by quality measurement and work hard to ensure R&D and engineering teams have the advice and equipment to ensure reliable measurements to fine tune critical development decisions.  Our aim with this blog is to navigate you through trends, technologies and solutions in test and measurement across industries to help you improve product development,  save energy and enhance connectivity.

Meet the Precision Maker

Luca Rizzardi

We caught up with Luca Rizzardi, T&M Sales Manager for Yokogawa, to find out a little more about what attracted him to a career in electronics and measurement and why he chose to work for Yokogawa.

“I attended the Polytechnic College of Milan, graduating in electronic engineering. The real entry into the measuring instrumentation sector was with my entry into Yokogawa Italia. One of the most motivating points of working in Yokogawa is the type of markets, applications and customers. There are countless interesting and motivating products for Yokogawa’s sales and my preference goes to wattmeters and, to the latest model released, namely the WT5000. Yokogawa provides customers with nothing less than excellence in instrumentation accompanied by consultancy and partnership customer care. A very new technology I am excited about, is quantum computing. Precision is a physical and technological characteristic in which Yokogawa excels. Yokogawa can provide customers with state-of-the-art equipment. Precision in the measurement allows our customers to make better products for their customers and markets. ”


Melroy Boogaard

We caught up with Yokogawa’s Account Manager Products, Boogaard Melroy to find out a little more about what attracted him to a career in electronics and measurement and why he chose to work for Yokogawa.
“I wanted to explore more of my sales skills and be in a commercial role. Being able to be at the front of all technical developments and to have a degree of influence attracted me to Yokogawa.
Probably the most fascinating new product I have worked on is around our partnership with University of Twente with our WT5000. What excites me most is the development of future cars and medical robotics. Both will have a great impact on the world I suspect. The most important thing we provide our customers with is trust, reliability and knowledge. Precision makes the difference between number 1 or 2 in every aspect and in some cases’ the precision of our instruments can make the difference of being market leader or not. In other cases’ the reliability of our instruments is key in many development environments where this is absolutely-mandatory.”


Lee Thomas

We caught up with Yokogawa’s UK Sales Manager, Lee Thomas, to find out a little more about what attracted him to a career in electronics and measurement and why he chose to work for Yokogawa.
“My first experience in electronics and measurement was in the Armed Forces (Royal Navy). I was 18 yrs old and served for 5 years. I worked for a distribution company that sold Yokogawa products and the product reliability was well known. I have full confidence in Yokogawa products capabilities, often a manufacturer will advertise specifications on extrapolated data, Yokogawa works on certainty.
The most fascinating projects I have worked on include the WT5000 Power Analyser and the DL950 Scopecorder, both very different products to one another yet combined together offer a powerful measurement.
Looking to the future, quantum computing looks very exciting with the many applications it can support. A bit more selfish to me though is fully autonomous cars as I could literally work on the go. Precision offers reassurance and aligns with being the ‘best possible’. In a world where manufacturers of products aspire to be the best in their own competitive market, Precision offers a route to success.”
